B-R to host FCA Fields of Faith

Students from Daviess and Martin County will be joining thousands of other youth on fields all across the nation on Oct. 9, 2013, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the eighth annual national Fields of Faith event. This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 450 locations throughout the nation on this same date. The Daviess/Martin county event will be held at the Ruritan Park in Montgomery from 6-8 p.m.

While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker that creates a spectator event, Fields of Faith is structured as a student-to-student ministry. Peers invite their own classmates and teammates to meet on their school’s athletic field to hear fellow students share their testimonies, challenge them to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ.

This will be the third Fields of Faith event for Barr-Reeve, Loogootee, North Daviess, Washington and Washington Catholic Schools. Last year, approximately 250 students and supporters attended at North Daviess High School.

“We have grown each year, and as our chairman spend a year or two on the leadership committee, they learn how to organize and put on the Fields Of Faith Event”, said Ron Bratton, Daviess/Martin County FCA rep. This year the chairmen are Jenna Knepp and Kara Nicholson seniors at Barr-Reeve High School. When Field is over next years chairmen will begin to immediately fill the committee and start planning fundraising and next years Fields Of Faith.

The national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, more than 600,000 students have joined in the movement. In 2012 alone, more than 160,000 students gathered on 424 fields across 37 states to participate in the event.

It’s not just those numbers that have FCA organizers excited about Fields of Faith. It’s the real-life impact that these gatherings are having on young people. Last year’s series of events saw 3,710 students make first-time faith commitments to follow Jesus Christ, 4,809 recommitted their life to Christ and 6,885 committed to reading the Bible daily.
